A cat chasing a mouse in Tirana’s main power station caused a 72-hour blackout across parts of the Albanian capital, the electricity company said on Friday.

One sign in residential Stratton Road, Chorlton, Manchester, read 30mph but the other read 20mph. Resident Harold Lantsberry said: “It’s quite ridiculous and I wondered at first whether it’s some kind of joke.

“I don’t know which speed the council is going to try and enforce, but perhaps it’s simply an IQ test for harassed drivers.”
